Book Description:
Malcolm Quantrill first met Norman Foster in 1991, when he
wrote an article on Foster's Tokyo Century Tower. The result
was a collaboration between Qunatrill and the Foster studio
in the production of this unique study of the Foster ethos.
The Norman Foster Studio offers a number of original
revelations about the philosophy and design methods that have
generated the reputation of the Foster studio over the past
three decades. Quantrill's explorations begin with a
distinctly personal account of Norman Foster's childhood and
beginnings in the world of architecture, and continues with
a dialohue between the author and each of the five members
of the Foster parternship. At the core of this book is the
provocative critique of some of Foster's key buildings and
projects including the Joslyn Museum Extension in Omaha.
In the first truly comprehensive critique of the Foster
oeuvre, the book is fully illustrated throughout and contains
many original drawings by SirNorman Foster and much previously
unpublished material from the practice archives.

Norman Foster - Building The Gherkin

Can a single building impact the career of an architect, the image of a global company and the future of a major city? Building the Gherkin chronicles the design, planning and construction of the controversial Swiss Re building, an ‘ecological skyscraper’ designed by renowned British architect Norman Foster.

Just a month and a day after the World Trade Center attack in New York, the first steel beam of 30 St Mary Axe (as its officially known) was erected in London on a site that had seen two previous IRA bombings. One question was on everyone’s mind: was it the right time and place to build a new iconic tower?

Sparking further controversy was the building’s design. Meant to address spatial, environmental, and social concerns, its unique design was so radical that it quickly became the target of ridicule in the British press, earning its nickname, ‘the erotic gherkin.’

Building the Gherkin is a fascinating documentary that covers the four-and-a-half year development period. Documenting everything from the initial blueprint design to the give-and-take between client and architect to the furnishing of the workspace, the film provides an essential, rarely-presented, overview of the entire architectural process.

So has the Gherkin become the landmark they all dreamt of? Since its completion in 2004, the building has won a number of prestigious architecture awards, and was voted the most admired new building in the world by fellow architects. But perhaps more importantly, the Gherkin has punctured the zeitgeist. It has been prominently featured in two Hollywood films (Woody Allen’s Match Point and Basic Instinct 2), a comic book, a video game, and has even been blown up by aliens in a popular British science-fiction television series.

With an introduction by Norman Foster
And essays by Deyan Sudjic and Spencer de Grey

A landmark in the history of the British Museum and one of Norman Foster ’s most significant projects to date, the Great Court has reclaimed and reinvigorated one of London ’s most important public spaces, transforming the Museum. Published to coincide with a major retrospective of Foster ’s work held at the British Museum, this book brings together essays, design drawings, and photographs to provide an unprecedented account of the development and completion of Foster ’s project.

From the Publisher
An introductory essay by Deyan Sudjic presents the Great Court as the culmination of centuries of change within the Museum .a reconciliation of past and future, which has both restored and transfigured the heart of this public institution. Spencer de Grey, a partner at Foster and Partners, documents the design and construction of the individual elements within the Great Court and the vast glazed canopy, which surmounts them. Introduced by Norman Foster and richly illustrated with photographs of the Great Court during construction and in its spectacular finished state, this book provides an insight into the evolution of one of London ’s most remarkable architectural spaces.
